3rd Era PDF Mega-Bundle

d20 Classics Return in the 3rd Era PDF Mega-Bundle!

From 2000–2008, Green Ronin used the then-new Open License and the d20 System Trademark License to publish sourcebooks, settings, and adventures compatible with Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition and its 3.5 revision. With the advent of 4E, the d20 STL went away, and we rebranded our titles with the 3rd Era logo. Now you can get more than 60 of those titles in the 3rd Era PDF Mega-Bundle, many available as PDFs for the first time!

The 3rd Era PDF Mega-Bundle includes:

  • Award-winning sourcebooks, such as Book of Fiends and Book of the Righteous.
  • Titles from our Freeport line, such as the Freeport Trilogy, Freeport: The City of Adventure (2002), Denizens of Freeport, Black Sails Over Freeport, Creatures of Freeport, The Pirate’s Guide to Freeport, and more.
  • Books from our Master Class line, such as the Shaman’s Handbook, Psychic’s Handbook, Assassin’s Handbook, Avatar’s Handbook, Unholy Warrior’s Handbook, and more.
  • Settings from our Mythic Vistas line, such as Skull & Bones, Eternal Rome, Damnation Decade, Testament, and more.
  • Books from our Races of Renown line, such as Hammer & Helm: A Guidebook to Dwarves, Fang & Fury: A Guidebook to Vampires, Bow & Blade: A Guidebook to Wood Elves, Aasimar & Tiefling: A Guidebook to the Planetouched, and more.
  • Rulebooks from our Advanced line, such as the Advanced Player’s Manual, Advanced Gamemaster’s Guide, Advanced Bestiary, and more.
  • Adventures from our Bleeding Edge line, such as Temple of the Death Goddess, Mansion of Shadows, Escape from Ceranir, Dirge of the Damned, and more.
  • Web enhancements for books like Hammer & Helm and Plot & Poison, and PDF expansions like Testament: The Hittites.
  • 5 stat files to accompany systemless sourcebooks such as Cults of Freeport and Buccaneers of Freeport.

The 3rd Era Mega-Bundle is your chance to get almost $700 of material for an unbeatable price. 3E Players and GMs can give their campaigns a massive shot in the arm. Fans of other editions, or indeed any fantasy RPGs, will find settings and adventures galore. The Freeport books alone can fuel years long campaigns. Collectors will love the opportunity to get early books—predating when we began selling PDFs—available in that format for the first time.

The 3rd Era Freeport Companion covers the Pirate’s Guide to Freeport, and 3.5 NPC files are included for Buccaneers of Freeport and Cults of Freeport.

Note: The world, our society, and Green Ronin have changed a lot in the last 22 years. Some of these books contain material that we’d approach differently now, if at all. This is the historical record, though, so as always with roleplaying games, use the parts you like to fit these classic titles into your 2022 campaigns.

Hi, when will the special sale price end? M&M lasted about two weeks or so. Will the same go for this one?

Thanks for making this bundle! (And the M&M one, which I picked up from the GRR site before it went live here.) Is there any chance this could be set up as a bundle normally (i.e. with the individual titles)? I don't need the prorated price, I've already bought the bundle, but it would square up the site UI and show that I've got the (files for) the other titles.

Sad that this does not have Black Company and Thieves World material, some of the best 3rd era products ever published.

Licensing limitations, I expect. Happy I still have my hard copy versions, though.

I am thankful I was able to get hard copies too, amazing stuff. If Green Ronin ever wants to Kickstart licensing costs, I'll be there.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
